WHAT IS #GIVINGTUESDAY?
We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, December 1, 2015, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.
It’s a simple idea. Just find a way for your family, your community, your company or your organization to come together to give something more. Then tell everyone you can about how you are giving. Join us and be a part of a global celebration of a new tradition of generosity.
This #GIVINGTUESDAY, The Basket Lady will be donating 10% of sales to a local Philadelphia charity called Rubye's Kids.
Beside doing amazing work for underprivileged children in the Philadelphia area throughout the year, each December Rubye's Kids holds a holiday party for 500 needy children ages 6-8 years old. This event provides a day of joy and celebration during the holidays for children in need and gives them a hot meal and a holiday gift. Also, the children receive essential school supplies, a book and winter gear. Many children who have attended in the past 22 years have come back to volunteer when they got older.
